In March 1980, Snow Summit Ski Corporation purchased 5.91 acres of land in the City of Big Bear Lake, California. The Harrison Price Company (HPC) was retained to provide an evaluation of the best use of the property within the context of zoning and other potential government restrictions, with the objective of establishing a strategy for dealing with the property and its market value. Snow Summit Ski Corporation was open to selling or developing the property, depending upon the factors of risk, return and long-term stability of the development options. The report includes the following sections: introduction, executive summary, site description, March 1980 purchase terms, zoning, industrial land, jurisdiction, no-growth initiative, Big Bear economic base, population, age, housing, income and employment, tourism, industrial facilities, highest and best use analysis: convalescent hospital, mini-storage facility, industrial park development, and recommended disposition strategy. The report includes tables and appendices.
